The 280 Rem was "neutered" from the get go by the pump rifle format. Handloaders started hot rodding it and Remington reintroduced it as the 7mm Express.

Having two pressure standards for the same cartridge under two different names was probably not helpful. But ballistics wise it was a good round in either format.
